Not Even a Hint – GIVEAWAY!

mm1This month’s giveaway is featured at the bottom of this article. Keep reading for details.

As we strive to reach the potential God has planned for us, let’s not forget about one very important aspect––that of sexual integrity.

How much impurity can we allow into our lives before it becomes a problem? According to God, none (1 Thessalonians 4:3-4). There’s no amount of lust or sexual impurity that is appropriate or pleasing to God, and author Joshua Harris goes into the hows and whys of the sinfulness of impurity, as well as reminding us of a better way to live.

Not Even a Hint is an easy-to-understand, 175-page book crammed full of information about lust and sexual purity. This book is written for anyone who desires to be completely pure, but struggles, whether male or female, married or single. He tells us that we can’t win the battle of sexual integrity on our own, but must rely on God to help us. The sections and chapters are well organized and written in an easy-to-read format.

Part One: The Truth About Lust
1. Not even a hint: Why can’t I seem to beat lust?
2. What God Called Good: Is it biology or is it sin?
3. You can’t save yourself: Where can I find the power to change?

Part Two: In the Thick of the Battle
4. A custom-tailored plan: Where am I weakest and what can I do?
5. Guys and girls: How are we different and how can we help each other?
6. Self-centered sex: How do I deal with masturbation?
7. Half a poison pill won’t kill you: How do I cope with the temptations of media?

Part Three: Strategies for Long-Term Change
8. Lone rangers are dead rangers: Why is accountability so important?
9. The sword of the spirit: Can the truth help me defeat the lies?
10. Holiness is a harvest: How can I sow the Spirit?

mm3Joshua Harris doesn’t allow room for excuses in his book––sin is sin, and lust, in any form, is still lust. He talks about impurity issues that guys and girls deal with, and he doesn’t give an easy out––as one doesn’t exist––but he does give practical suggestions about how to overcome all forms of lust. Not Even a Hint also discusses God’s plan for sex, and we’re told what lust isn’t.

We’re encouraged to look to God and to examine ourselves––Harris knows, and explains, that all purity begins with the core of our being––our heart (Proverbs 4:23). To truly be pure, and to fully live up to God’s potential for us, we must guard our hearts so we can live a life free from the entanglement and heartache of sin.

    I an new to you site and this book looks great. I think what I would like to see is keeping your children safe from tv ads that are harmful and how what is on regular tv has gone so far wrong

  2. This looks like a great book ! I would love the chance to read this book!

  3. Stephanie, there was an article written in June, titled, Soap Operas and the Heart. You might enjoy reading it. I know there are new ways to monitor what is shown on our TV’s to protect not only our children, but ourselves as well. If anyone knows more about that, please feel free to comment.

  4. This looks like a very good book to read and share with other people. We should all strive to be better than what we are surrounded with in our daily lives. I think the media and how to safegard ouselves and our familys is something worth discussing further.
